    Court rules Trump can end Temporary Protected Status for illegal aliens

    Court rules Trump can end Temporary Protected Status for immigrant families

    The appeals court ruling means the immigrants must find another way to remain in the United States legally or depart after a wind-down period.

    A U.S. appeals court on Monday decided President Donald Trump can phase out protections for hundreds of thousands of families that have been living and working legally in the U.S., many for decades.


    The 2-1 ruling by the California-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals lifted a block of Trump's ending of Temporary Protected Status, TPS, for nearly 400,000 families. The administration could expel from the country people from Sudan, Nicaragua and Haiti as soon as March 2021 and from El Salvador by November 2021.


    Immigrants from El Salvador make up the largest group of TPS recipients, with an estimated 263,000 Salvadorans covered by the program, but a bilateral agreement will allow Salvadorans an additional year to stay in the United States if the courts ultimately uphold Trump’s termination.
    "To end protections for over 400,000 TPS families, including the more than 130,000 people who have been risking their lives as essential workers in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, would be very cruel; especially during these difficult times," Paul Andre Mondesir, lead organizer for the National TPS Alliance, said in a statement.

    The appeals court ruling means that those immigrants will be required to find another way to remain in the United States legally or depart after a wind-down period of at least six months and longer in the case of El Salvador. However, the case is likely to be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, which could delay that outcome.


    The decision comes between campaign swings by Trump and Democrat Joe Biden through Florida, a critical battleground state and a must-win for Trump to win the White House. Biden is headed to Central Florida Tuesday where he hopes to shore up support among Latino voters.


    The Biden campaign has called the TPS decisions “politically motivated” and said that Biden would protect enrollees from being returned to unsafe countries.


    A recent poll of Florida Latinos showed Biden leads with Hispanic voters 53 percent to Trump's 37 percent. Although Trump leads among Cuban Americans, Biden leads with Puerto Ricans, the poll shows. When grouped together, all other Latino groups in the state, including people with Central American ancestry, favor Biden.


    People with Temporary Protected Status are generally in the country when disaster or political upheaval strikes in their home countries such as the catastrophic earthquake that wiped out large parts of Haiti in 2010 or when Hurricane Mitch, the second deadliest Atlantic hurricane, hit Central America in 1998.


    The status must be renewed periodically by the secretary of homeland security, who can extend it for six- to 18-month intervals. People with TPS do not have pathways to citizenship without leaving the country.


    "Fuels Trump's war on immigrants"


    "This disappointing court decision fuels Trump’s war on immigrants. Since the beginning of his presidency, Trump has worked relentlessly to strip away the legal status of hundreds of thousands of individuals with Temporary Protected Status," said Frank Sharry, executive director of America's Voice.
    Judge Consuelo Callahan, an appointee of Republican former President George W. Bush, wrote in a 54-page opinion that the Trump administration decisions to phase out the protections were not reviewable and therefore should not have been blocked.

    Callahan also rejected a claim by plaintiffs that Trump’s past criticism of non-white, non-European immigrants influenced the TPS decisions.

    “While we do not condone the offensive and disparaging nature of the president’s remarks, we find it instructive that these statements occurred primarily in contexts removed from and unrelated to TPS policy or decisions,” she wrote.

    The termination of TPS for Haitians is also subject to separate litigation in the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York.


    Trump has made his tough immigration stance a hallmark of his presidency and 2020 re-election campaign against Democratic challenger Joe Biden.

    The Trump administration has argued that most countries in the program have recovered from the related disasters or conflicts, while the status has been renewed for years beyond its need.

    YES!!!!


    Order them all to sell out, pack up, and go home!

    Say "thank you"...do not disgust us with kicking and screaming in our streets!

    They do not leave within 60 days, and are caught, they can never come back!

    We have our own "extreme hardship" from floods, tornados, hurricanes, fires, and earthquakes and now NO jobs!
